Synthetic Marmalade

Mike Luoma

Poems, Song Lyrics and Magic Spells written by Mike Luoma over the past 20 years. Luoma's poems and lyrics range from idylls on Vermont ("The Monkton Road") to songs the Boss might like ("Cars & Girls #342")to spell-like ritual poetry ("Ceremonies of Light and Dark"), and all points in between. The poems and spells are recited, the lyrics are sung accompanied by a guitar, recorded straight to two-track with some overdubs. The content is presented in a different order from the print book so that songs and poems could be mixed together. Special guest Sean Kelly of the Samples helped record "Sonny's Got A Gun" and plays on the track. Archived from iTunes at https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/synthetic-marmalade/id311790620.

The songs in this part are inspired (if that's the right word) by the worlds of politics and advertising. Some of these left-wing, liberal rantings and ravings will offend conservatives and Republicans, be forewarned... this part includes: How to Suck Seed (song) Rhyme & Punishment (poem) Gimme! (song) Do The Think-Back Thing (p) Oliver North (p) Mad Captain (s) Rumbles (p) Always, Again (s) We Are Gray (p)
